Who is cosmetic dentistry for?
The wide variety of cosmetic dental procedures available means there are treatments for many different dental needs. Whether you have chipped, crooked or missing teeth, an over-bite, under-bite or cross-bite, or you want to remove teeth stains; Dentaltown Launceston dentists can recommend suitable cosmetic dental treatments that will deliver the results that you require.
Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about looks – most procedures will also improve the function of your teeth as well as alleviating pain and discomfort.
How can I make over my smile?
If you want to enhance your smile, we provide a number of effective cosmetic dentistry, including:
• Crowns and bridges
• Dental implants
• Porcelain veneers
• Teeth whitening
• White fillings.
What are the benefits of composite or white fillings?
White fillings are made from a composite resin that we match to your own tooth colour for a more natural looking restoration. By using the most up to date bonding process we can complete this procedure in one visit. Composite fillings can be used to restore decayed teeth, replace old fillings, for building up worn teeth or even to change the shape and redesign a tooth.
What are ceramic inlays and onlays?
In some cases composite fillings are just not strong enough to maintain the structural integrity of a tooth and as an alternative your dentist may suggest a ceramic inlay or onlay. Similar to a crown, these restorations are bonded to your tooth and can actually strengthen your tooth whilst looking very natural. These restorations are more conservative than a crown because they preserve more of tooth structure. Due to the strength of the ceramic material and there being less of an impact on the tooth, you may find that this type of restoration will last many years longer than a composite filling.
